Sketch Saturday #148

Well I have followed the layout on this weeks "Sketch Saturday Challenge" for this card. I have a few friends turning 30 over the next few months, so thought I'd get started on their cards. I've not decided yet who this card is for so have not added their name to it yet, but know they very rarely visit my blog so I'm ok on that score lol!

Attention To Detail:

The image is "Vivienne" by Kraftin Kimmie, whenever I hear the name Vivienne I think of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman lol. ...Anyway she was coloured with my promarkers: Crimson red, shale, walnut, cocoa, cinnamon, dusky pink, blush, satin, cool grey 3,4 ,5 and Black. I followed a fab tutorial by the talented "Coops" on colouring her hair and I'm pleased with the results, it's so much easier doing the shade first then the light first like I used too.

The red DP is by Basic Grey from the Sultry range and the black is by Bo Bunny. The gems and glitter are from my stash. The fantastic sentiment is from "Paper Makeup Stamps".

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

Allsorts Week #96 - For A Special Lady.
Craft Your Days Away Challenge - #16 For Mum or Special Lady.
Crafty Cardmakers Challenge - #42 Special Birthdays.
